Ten-month update


Sammy turned ten months old on Saturday--um, I totally just realized that I have less than two months to go before he turns one.  It's like I blink and a week has gone by.   Anyway, I'd estimate that Sammy's weighing in at around 24 pounds and is over 30" tall.  The kid is built like a brick house and is wearing 18-24 month sized tops (though he still fits into some of his 12-month pants).  He's currently rocking four top teeth and two bottom teeth and I think an incisor or two up top are working their way through at the moment.  Yay, more teething.

Sammy was looking pretty shaggy on top, so for his ten-month birthday we took him to the barber shop for his first official haircut.  I was worried that he might fuss and refuse to sit still, but Sammy handled the whole thing with aplomb.  It also helped that the barber had tuned the television to SpongeBob SquarePants, which had Sammy transfixed for most of his haircut.  I watched as my baby transformed into a little boy right in front of my eyes as the barber snipped away.



No more shaggy Sammy

Sammy's saying "mama" and "dada" but he has no concept of what the words actually mean. He loves to mimic sounds and will echo back noises with startling accuracy--he had several conversations with my family's rather talkative Great Dane this weekend; I'm really going to have to watch my mouth around him. Sammy will wave from time to time, but I think he just does it for fun, not because he realizes that it means "hi" or "bye."  Another favorite pastime is shaking his head back and forth as though he's saying no; I've had fun with this by asking Sammy questions such as, "Do you want to go to Disneyland?" and "Do you want ice cream for dinner?"


He's still not too sure of grass, but I was able to convince him that moss and acorns can be cool.  And then he tried to eat the acorn.  Speaking of eating, Sammy is continuing in his streak of eating just about anything I put in front of him, which is pretty sweet.  Sammy's also crawling and cruising like it's his job, and apparently he even stood without holding onto anything for a second or two (although I wasn't there to witness this).


Sammy's crawling and cruising with abandon, which has led to some great bruises from his forehead down to his knees (not too mention his awesome bloodshot eye, which was the result of him nailing himself in the eye with a toy).  For some reason, he seems to hate having his diaper changed on the floor and fights me tooth and nail--but when I change Sammy on an elevated surface, he's totally calm.  Weird.  Speaking of diapers, cloth diapering continues to go well although I'm starting to worry about him sizing out of his Fuzzi Bunz.  Though I suppose I can always use my giant baby as an excuse to buy some cute new diapers, right? **wink**

It's funny how a haircut makes him look so much older, yet with Maeve I think it's her hair getting longer (finally!) that makes her look like a big girl - well, that and all those teeth! He looks lovely :D

He is too cute and those eyes are to die for. My weeks seem to fly by too, craziness.

Your son is such a cutie! I just love his blue eyes. I'm still holding out on hair cut number 1 for my girl and she's already almost 21 months! Sammy's turned out great!

Cute! It is sad that they have to get bigger. I always think about how old my little niece is getting... I'm with Ashley- can't we force them to stop growing?
